Word count: 1241
Today marks the day of the big push. I’ve been flirting with the opening for a day or two, a couple of hundred words here and there, but today, not only did I pass my driving test (woo hoo!), I felt a rhythm kicking off to the writing. The opening is a tough one, and I have made it that way on purpose – it needs to really set the scene in a much more captivating way than the first draft – which started life as a short story, so the opening was never going to be right for the rest of it.
At least I can announce a word count and get down to the regular beat of doing this every day again. At least this time I will be able to get plenty of feedback on the workshop.
